OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Housing Summit will take place April 14 in Oklahoma City. This one-day educational event held every three years offers the opportunity for those working in affordable housing to gather to learn about the latest happenings facing the industry. It is Oklahoma’s premier affordable housing event for 2016.
The Housing Summit will kick off with a breakfast keynote from Iraq veteran Noah Galloway who lost two limbs during combat. After a long road of rehabilitation and overcoming depression, he set a goal to get back in shape, live a healthier life, and inspire others. Galloway placed third on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars and will share his inspiring comeback story and message of “No Excuses.”
Following Galloway’s keynote, attendees will hear about Oklahoma’s Housing Needs Assessment, completed in 2015. This study, the first in the state since 2001, is a comprehensive look at the affordable housing needs in each county and includes information about disaster resiliency, fair housing and other key topics.
During lunch, Anne Mahlum, founder of the nonprofit, Back on My Feet, will share how the organization has transformed the lives of homeless individuals across the country through a running program. Back on My Feet’s mission is to use running to help those experiencing homelessness change the way they see themselves so they can make real change in their lives that results in employment and independent living.
The Housing Summit will offer a total of nine breakout sessions, featuring a mix of local and national speakers, from which attendees may choose.
